Ep 2.31 - LIVE! with Scott Bartlett

April 23, 2017

Scott Bartlett, author of the Ixan Prophecies and the Unable to Die series, had an interesting journey into the world of independent publishing. When many writers were breaking out with ebooks, he was successfully selling print books. His eclectic writing style once led him to pen a medieval comedy called Royal Flush. By the end of the episode Bartlett and the hosts discuss everything from military science fiction, books about corporate warriors, and character tropes.

Some interesting topics came up. Should you start a book with an action scene? What type action? What’s at stake? Fortunately, everyone on the show is familiar with the Brandon Sanderson writing series.

We dig into the Honor Harrington series by David Weber and share some opinions. Which, obviously, led us to the tech levels and Bartlett’s fascinating model for artificial gravity.

In summary, this was an excellent episode and I came out of it with a free book (see the Prequel giveaway link below.)

Ep 2.25 - LIVE! with Brian Staveley

April 14, 2017

A while back, Josh suggested I read The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley and told me it was a great book. I, of course, responded by snapping up a copy with my Audible.com subscription and placing it in my digital to read stack. When the time came to read it, I was immediately hooked. The story sings from the first line and the narrator is Simon Vance, one of the best in the voice acting business in my opinion.

So, great, you say. We like Brian Staveley.

Why should we listen to this episode? What is in it for us?

Staveley does an excellent job telling us about his story world without spoilers, and better yet, reads one of his first query letters (which eventually earned the attention of Tor Books, his publisher). That right there is a first for the show; a best selling author reads his actual query letter on Live with Keystroke Medium.

There are great stories about living and writing in Thailand. He talks about working with agents, editors, and one expert beta reader (his wife) who keeps giving him great ideas. There’s more, but it might be better to just check out this very special episode.

If you would like to go backstage (so to speak) to Brian Staveley’s epic fantasy series Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne series and his upcoming prequel novel, Skullsworn, now’s your chance.
